Atlanta area camping recommendations please

We'd appreciate recommendations for camping in the Atlanta, Georgia area. We plan a trip to The Georgia Dome September 5th to watch The Crimson Tide and Hokies play in the season opener. Thanks in advance for any help in selecting a nice campground environment for our stay in the region.

Campgrounds in Atlanta area

Indian Springs State Park and High Falls State Park are both nice. They are both over an hour's drive south of Atlanta. Red top Mountain State Park is also beautiful but over an hour's drive north of Atlanta.Check out their websites. Reservations will be necessary in advance.

Stone Mt. is in close but quite expensive. If you have never been and hail from the south it is worth consideration. Allow time to clime the back side of the Mt. Quite often there are evening light shows.

Stone Mountain Park

If you have children, Stone Mountain Park Has tons of things to do. It has a family camping package deal sometimes. I believe there is a shuttle Ferry from the campground to the park activities. We have not camped there because we read they have a small dog restriction at the campground and we have an 80 lb Lab. We have been to the Park numerous times and it definitely take several days to see and do everything.They have added a section in the last few years that has a glass blowing demonstration, a blacksmith demonstation, candy making demonstration, a 4D theatre, plus all kinds of things going on for kids. It is the closest to Atlanta, and Downtown Stone Mountain even has some fun places to shop in. If you are more into peace and tranquility go to Red Top Mountain!

McKinney Campground is also a very nice one! It is a little closer to Atlanta (about 5 miles) than Red Top Mountain. I like it because you can actually reserve a specific site. It's clean, quiet, on the Allatoona River, and the sites are not on top of each other. You can make reservations through ReserveUSA.com.

There are a couple of campgrounds in McDonough (of I-75) on the South side that are fairly nice as another option. Sometimes we stop there before entering back in to pick up our dogs in the morning.

atlantasouthrvresort.com

I would really recommend Stone Mountain if you are staying there for the weekend. Great park and worth the price. There campground is a samll part of a bigger park that is all ran by Marriott. If you have kids there are great play grounds and the amusement park area. It is also very safe and secure. We go there at least once a year and we live in Atlanta!

There is a little german restaurant down in the Stone Moutain Village that is awesome - Directions

If you decide on Allatoona Lake (NW of Atlanta) go here for a list of campgrounds from the Corps of Engineers:

Corps Lakes Gateway: Georgia - Allatoona Lake

We've always managed to snag a waterfront site - very nice although there is some railroad noise at times.
